Fantastic experience up close and personal with the Penguins. Well worth the extra cost to be so close. Would highly recommend this option.
The whole experience was amazing it was the highlight of my holiday
Very cool but need own transport to get there
Loved this tour! Was very personalised - only 10 people on the tour. We got to see penguins up close on a secluded beach with no one else around. Wonderful experience.
From start to finish it was perfect. We are so glad we did the VIP package. We had a wonderful ranger meet us and answer all our questions. We had reserved seats at the very front of the parade. If you're going, make it extra special.
This was an outstanding trip. Very unique and individualized, with a great tour guide/ranger Cecilia who was fantastic at explaining everything. We saw 200 penguins at very close range on a wonderfully secluded moonlit beach, with a total of 10 people. The only things that I would suggest viator emphasize up front so that people are well aware are that there is NO photography, and NO transport from Melbourne.
Ultimate Eco tour was an experience I will never forget! Saw 300 tiny penguins up close!!!! Amazing!

The Penguin Eco Tour was brilliant. We were seeing the penguins in their own environment rather than seeing them come into ours. A memorable experience
We were very pleased with our trip to see the Little Penguins. Tim, our guide, was a friendly, informative young man and told us so much abount the Penguins that we did not know. All the staff were friendly and helpful and we would recommend this Eco Tour to anyone. Thank you all very much.
Unexpectedly fabulous! Up close and personal with thousands of penguins instead of thousands of tourists. Our ranger, Michele, started with a very detailed and informative orientation and history about the penguins of Phillip Island. Then we donned our rain gear and rode in a van to the secluded beach opposite the main beach where thousands sit in the bleachers. Though the tide was high, the weather was perfect and we managed to find a narrow spit of sand to sit on. At 6:17pm, we saw the first raft of penguins emerge from the surf and head for the bluffs. The infrared monoscopes worked great and we counted over 200 penguins. All the time, we could hear commentary by Michele whispered over our wireless headsets. I appreciated that Michele seemed in no particular hurry as we returned through the penguin "suburbs" where we could observe the penguin interactions. Traffic is blocked from the area at sunset so we had the birds all to ourselves (along with a few wallabies). The Eco Tour was one of the most enjoyable events and one of the best values of our trip. Don't forget, cameras are absolutely forbidden so get your photo taken in the main building against a green screen. You get a price discount on the photo as well as free hot chocolate at the end.
